Success is not everything

Genesis 4: 16 "Then Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden."

WORLDLY SUCCESS:   We can see that after leaving God and His presence, Cain was not a failure or a mess, but he built a city and named it after his son Enoch.   Everything seems to be going great, the other descendants also were builders, musicians, skilled men in the use of bronze and iron, we have here mentioned in verses 20-22 all that is required for a luxurious modern living.  Likewise, Youngsters today plan about foreign vacation, car, own opulent houses, branded clothes and everything except connection with God.  Cain generation is what we see today, are you listening?  I have worked for more than 2 decades in top corporate companies and I know the mentality of the young people.   Success is not everything, money is not everything…..



QUALITY AND CALIBRE OF THE FAMILY LINE: Now let me point out the character of this guy Lamech: read: 23        Lamech said to his wives, "Adah and Zillah, Listen to my voice, You wives of Lamech, Give heed to my speech, For I have killed a man for wounding me; And a boy for striking me;


From the above passage, we understand that not only did Lamech (Cain’s grand child) commit polygamy (first in the Bible) he also was a murderer.  What more can you expect from a man like Cain who walked away from the presence of God?  Hey friend, while they amass that great wealth, down the line LOT OF COMPROMISES ARE DONE.  Did you get that?

  • Not many pay taxes ( that includes Christians, mark that)
  • Not many are true in their submission of accounts, everything is manipulated and done (that includes church too)
  • Not  many keep their promise (that includes pastors too)-
  • Not many stick to the wife/husband they married , many Lamechs’ out there…..

A father of one of my students, studying in our Abide School for the poor, told me, ‘Madam, say something and threaten my son who is behaving like a hooligan at home, since the time of COVID 19 lockdown, I am unable to manage my children.’  By the way, three of his children are studying in our school, imagine our plight!  Children today are a threat to parents, no manners, respect, obedience or good etiquettes.  Online classes have brought in mobiles that had thoroughly ruined their mind and heart.  Youngsters love opulence, style and ape everything that stinks of money and power. Being tech-savvy, brilliant, smart, intelligent, speaking flawless English, well groomed, with an astute mind is not enough; without God you become DUNG.   We see Cain spirit everywhere today!  

What makes you think that we will escape the second wave of COVID 19 that has attacked UK, tell me?  It what way are we any better? CAIN'S WAY IS AWAY FROM GOD!
